I got reimbursed, but it wasn't exactly a pothole. It was roadwork that hadn't been properly covered before re-opening the road. I was taking the same route to work that I do every day, in the dark...

It's only a single data point, but ours has worked flawlessly for over a decade. If it failed, it would cost $0 to replace, because the door can still be operated manually in exactly the same manner...

That's absolutely where the mass market is, no question. No one's saying they should discontinue or dramatically re-architect the RX or NX.

The discussion had morphed somewhat into whether Lexus...

I assume it's much the same as when I get calls from "the support department at Windows", as an IT Manager with 23 years in the business.

Lighten up, Francis. :p

Brake pads are about as far from a major repair as you can get, unless the scale starts at "washer fluid refill=minor repair". As mentioned above, they're a maintenance...

The laptop in the comparison isn't cheap either--well over $2k, even with my discount, probably about $2,600 without. It's a magnesium frame with an aluminum base, carbon fiber lid, and Gorilla Glass...

The BTO MacBook Pro I ordered for our UI/UX manager on Dec 2 finally came in this week. Gave it to the desktop guys to get set up, so I haven't had a chance to play with it yet. My first...

This is true, but only because "blood sugar" is by definition "concentration of glucose in the blood". Honey has less 10% less glucose than sucrose does, so the immediate increase in blood glucose...

Any guesses on the powerplant? I'm going to say supercharged 7.4L Hemi V8, ~880hp. Should be AWD at those power levels, but I don't know where they'd procure such a system. Base price perhaps...

I've got to assume a program like that would be more like $4,000-$5,000 a month, given the $200k+ upfront cost of all the top-end AMG vehicles and the steep depreciation curve. Accounting for taxes,...
